BJB’s Releases Gen. 2 Linear Flat System (Zhaga Book 14 Standard)

BJB has released the 2nd generation Linear Flat System (LFS) with improved efficacy (up to 150 Lm/W) and light distributions. With these characteristics – which reflect the philosophy of “late stage finishing” – the LFS from BJB’s OEM-Line represents an intelligent solution offering considerable added value to both luminaire manufacturers and end-users. These comprehensive benefits are proving effective: Zhaga created a new standard (Book 14) for Socketable Linear LED Light Engines based on BJB’ Linear Flat System.

Product Features & Benefits:
•    Improved efficacy: up to 150 Lm/W
•    2 color temperatures: 3,000 & 4,000 Kelvin
•    3 different lengths: 2 foot, 4 foot, 5 foot
•    Light output available up to 4900 Lm
•    4 different light distributions for diverse applications (office, industrial, retail, …)
•    Improved visibility and contrast of the illuminated areas
•    Consistent color quality and uniform light distribution
•    Easy installation & maintenance
•    Socket system allows for “late-stage finishing” and LED upgrading
•    BJB Product Number: 32.130.0022 - 0027

Instead of fusing the LED luminaire body and light source together, including control gear, many manufacturers have opted for “late stage finishing”. The LFS consists of a socketable LED light source, lampholder and lamp support. In this way, a luminaire can be manufactured via traditional means with the “lamp” integrated at a later stage. The appropriate LED light source in terms of luminous flux, color temperature and color rendering is only fitted to the customer’s specification once the order has been placed – i.e. just prior to delivery or final installation of the lighting system. This enables the luminaire manufacturer to cut down on storage of expensive LED components which have the potential to rapidly become obsolete and to reduce high levels of capital commitment.

“Late Stage Finishing”:

The user always receives a luminaire with the latest lighting parameters – which makes sense when dealing with a fast-moving technology in which new LED generations come onto the market every year. There are also additional benefits during on-site installation as the LED light source can be clipped into the luminaire shortly before the lighting system goes into operation.

By keeping the luminaire body separate, it is also possible to replace the LED light source later, for example if retail stores have new lighting display requirements. A new, improved generation of LEDs can then be easily upgraded without replacing the entire fixture. The LFS provides the same flexibility as offered by conventional luminaires and the tool-free method of installation means convenient handling and ease of maintenance.

Elegant design:

The impressive features of the LFS are its extremely compact design, its clean lines and its excellent lighting parameters. This innovative product is therefore predestined for use in luminaires or strip lighting systems which were previously the domain of T5 fluorescent lamps.

The light source, which is actually only 37 mm wide, consists of an extruded aluminum profile (available in different color styles) with LED module and a diffusing PMMA cover. As it is fully enclosed, no special ESD measures are required by the luminaire manufacturer. This simplifies the production process significantly.

An alternative possibility for manufacturers with a high degree of vertical integration is to use their own LED light source with just the LFS lampholder and lamp support. Thereby BJB offers the individual components of the LFS to accommodate each manufacturer’s design preferences.
